Possibilities for Using NoSQL Databases in Information Systems in Transport

Andrzej Czerepicki


The article presents directions for development of end-user-oriented information systems in transport. Characteristics of databases belonging to the trend of NoSQL have been enumerated as well as the represented data models.
The example of a relational model transformation to a graph form and the concept of application of a graph database for connections search in public transport system have been presented. The general concept of a distributed information system has been presented which uses NoSQL databases in particular modules.
